I didn't take the implementation from any of the MD5 sources lying
around, I did a "clean room" build from the RFC's description.
(They're all byte-wise, while mine is bit-wise [the only one,
AFAIK].) I did use the RFC's sample code to get the values of the
various constants. Do I need to have some sort of licensing with the
RFC board; aren't they free for all?
